Washington Watch-Racism And Lack Of Diversity In The LGBT Community

I've talked about this subject for Lord knows how long in the seven years I've been writing at TransGriot, so it was nice to see the rest of the mainstream Black media jump getting the discussion started for the rest of the African-American community.  

The TVOne Washington Watch Sunday show hosted by Roland Martin is a nice alternative to Meet the Press and other Sunday conservafool dominated fare.   This particular show was broadcast back on March 11, but needs to be seen in light of recent rainbow tinged bigotry eruptions in the wake of the marriage equality legislative failure in Illinois.  

My ascot wearing Houston homeboy had as guests on this Washington Watch episode to discuss the topic Rev. Dr. Darlene Nipper, the deputy executive director of the national Gay And Lesbian Task Force, Cleo Manago, CEO and founder of Black Men's Xchange; and Earl Fowlkes, president and CEO of the Center for Black Equity to tackle the topic of racism and lack of diversity in the LGBT community.
